Administrative history

At various times throughout the history of the Esplanade Archives there has arisen a need to create a holding for smaller miscellaneous collections that are valuable and pertinent to the institution's mandate, yet at the same time incomplete and therefore not fit for individual fonds status. Previous to this point smaller miscellaneous collections were added to the Medicine Hat Museum and Art Gallery fonds.
